    Today was a busy day for Spydie Delica. It started by climbing over a pallet of mulch to get to another pallet where I had slice through layer after layer of plastic to get the color mulch I needed. Then I needed my knife to cut open the box for a new air condidtioner (replacement windows + window air conditioners = lousy afternoon. This lead to the highlight of my day cutting up the area rug that my dog decided to use as a wee wee pad. And lastly cutting opening the little plastic containers of flowers for the Mrs.

    Used my SOG Flash I to open boxes, cut cord to tie up empty boxes, open a padded envelope, strip insulation off a wire, oh and cut a hanging thread that was bugging me on my pants pocket.

    Used my Native to cut open bales of hay, straw and bags of animal bedding (pine shavings, sawdust, Carefresh). Cut up some produce for animal diets. Cut off some browse (small tree branches) to feed out. Cut up some cardboard boxes. Used a Micra's blade to hollow out a piece of carrot to administer medications (mentioned in another thread). At home, used a MeerKat to open a package that arrived in the mail, and later cut up that box.

    Its good to see that EDC Knives are used every day. They are probably one of the most used EDC's. If I don't use mine every day, my Grandson will borrow and use it. :)

    A little late, but yesterday - knocking down a bunch of cardboard boxes with my newly acquired Spydie Native, and almost newly acquired Delica 4/SE. BM Mini Grip/Tanto tip (also newly acquired) was used to open everything from a bag of Doritos to bags of potting soil for the wife's flower hobby. PE Delica 4 was used to cut some paracord & string for various daily things. Nothing unusual for me for weekend stuff. We'll see about today being at my day job :) So far just my LM Micra to trim a loose thread.

    At a wedding party, with my kid on the playground, I used the Squirt blade to cut off a plastic splinter on one of the slides. Not a good environment to pull out the Kershaw Leek, but the Squirt made it go unnoticed.

    99% of the time I use my knives for opening boxes. Today was no different! :laugh: The other 1% is for everything else...
